    Service and food were exceptional, truly some of the best sushi I’ve experienced. Staff was kind, very tentative and informative with any questions I had about the menu, as well as good drink pairings. Once rush hour hit it was pretty noisy and the service slowed down a bit, but is to be expected. Took my wife here for her birthday and gave us a couple of very delicious, complimentary entrée and dessert. Overall I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a casual but fine japanese dining experience, the fish is delivered daily from overseas, and is shown through the quality of the dishes, as well as the price. It is well worth it. These photos don’t do the food justice (it was dark, so the photo quality isn’t as great) just have to try it!

    Always a stunning experience. It's hard to rate the value with more stars since it is SOOOOO expensive, but I'm willing to do it every once and again. I wish I could afford it more because I'd be a regular if I could! The waiter, Chance, was excellent - unobtrusive but attentive. They gave us two freebies since our table was not ready at our reserved time.

    I think Uchi is my favorite restaurant in Austin. It’s a must when I’m in town. My family brought me for my birthday and once again it didn’t disappoint. From the broccoli bites and grilled edamame at the beginning to the dessert (candy bar is awesome) it was an experience. New flavors, new tastes in a word Awesome (as always). Our server really helped to guide us through the menu.

    We got there early and waited for our party and ordered a drink. While waiting a staff member passed around a delish bite from the chef. The service is always great and the food is nothing short of phenomenal.

    Creative and tasty food and meals presentation. But a bit pricey for the food being served and the rather dull dinner room : there is a need to add partitions between tables to decrease noise and increase privacy. this will create a much better denier experience ! Service was great . Now comparing places, Lucky Robot on So Co offers the same creativity and savory food at a much more engaging venue. and the overall value is also better.

    It was amazing! We chose the tasting menu and were blown away with each plate! Not only did they look like works of art, they were equally delicious. Our server, Alexis was amazing and provided our evening with enough space to enjoy each plate but stayed close by to meet our every request. Until next time!

    Uchi is one of the best restaurants in the Austin metro area. The fish was of high quality, the dishes were unique, and flavorful. It does get busy on the weekends and we had to reserve a week in advance.

    Probably the best sushi I had in the US. Service was a little abrasive from the moment we walked in. Layout is outdated, crowded, and therefore very loud, but as I said outstanding food, and an iconic restaurant in Austin.
